A circular coil has moment of inertia 0.8 kg m2 around any diameter and is carrying current to produce a magnetic moment of 20 Am2. The coil is kept initially in a vertical position and it can rotate freely around a horizontal diameter. When a uniform magnetic field of 4 T is applied along the vertical, it starts rotating, around its horizontal diameter. The angular speed the coil acquires after rotating by 60° will be 

(1) 10 rad s–1 

(2) 10π rad s–1 

(3) 20 rad s–1 

(4) 20π rad s–1

Ui + Ki  =  Uf + Kf

-MBcos60°+0 = - MBcos60° + 1/2​​​​​(Iw2​​​​​​) 

On solving the above equation, we get 

​​​​​​W = (MB/A)1/2   

      = 10.                              /

\(\sqrt(MB/I) \)
